Lemon Mousse with Fresh Blueberries is a perfect summer dessert. It is light and creamy and a great way to end just about any evening meal. It doesn’t take much to whip this together, just remember to allow time for it to set.
Lemon Mousse with Fresh Blueberries
4 Tbsp coconut oil
3 lg eggs
1/2 cup organic cane sugar
Juice from 2 large lemons
1 cup heavy cream
2 Tbsp lemon zest
fresh blueberries for garnish
Melt coconut oil in a double boiler over medium heat (you may also put a stainless steel bowl over a pot of simmering water, but do not let the bowl touch the water). In a separate small bowl, whisk together eggs, sugar, and lemon juice. Whisk until sugar is dissolved. Add egg mixture to the melted coconut oil and whisk constantly, until the mixture resembles pudding. Remove from stove and place in the refrigerator to cool completely.
While the egg mixture is cooling, prepare the whipping cream. Whip the cream with the grated lemon zest until stiff peaks form. Remove pudding mixture from refrigerator and fold into whipping cream. Spoon into pretty glass flutes and garnish with blueberries and lemon peel. Chill until ready to serve.
I was curious how many of you have a “bucket list”? If you didn’t ever see the movie Bucket List (click to watch the two-minute trailer), it is worth renting. A bucket list, for those of you who may not know, is a list of things you would like to do before you, well, kick the bucket. This past week I completed something on my Bucket list. Paul McCartney was playing in Seattle at Safeco Field to a sold out crowd. It was an open sky, clear blue night, complete with a full moon. And for Seattle, that’s pretty spectacular! He sang for three hours, playing mostly Beatles’ songs, then about two-thirds of the way through, he introduced the old members of Nirvana to the stage. They all jammed for nearly an hour, before Paul wrapped up the concert with “The End”. The tickets were a sweet gift from my hubby for celebrating our 29th wedding anniversary. My next bucket list item is Europe. Maybe that will come next year on our 30th. Celebrating under the Eiffel Tower? I could handle that!
It was a perfect night for a concert and a perfect way to celebrate 29 years of marriage!
And lemon mousse with fresh blueberries is a perfect way to end a meal.
